A bit of time has passed since my last post. It’s been a busy time and I imagine will only get busier as the holidays approach. Oh, that’s right, Thanksgiving is next week! Our daughter is coming home (and her little doggie that we love…our grand-dog) for a few days and the time will be marvelous. I have plans for a relaxing and yummy Thanksgiving day but come Friday, we may have to kick into high gear! I have some shopping and baking to do and trying to spend some time with other family and friends! We try to balance the calmness and the running around like crazy! I love the holidays and oh, yes, I usually start decorating the day after Thanksgiving! We’ll squeeze it all in, I’m sure!
This painting may stay in my private collection. Two reasons, one being, years ago I had a special little canary we named Spud. Little Spud sang and sang for several years, giving us such joy. I’ve not had another bird since Spud passed into bird heaven but maybe one day. The other reason for keeping this piece, well. I grew up shy. It’s been a lifetime challenge for me to force myself to speak out and be heard. I’ve often told close friends that at times I feel invisible. They disagree, only because I can talk freely within my close circle. I still get anxious around groups but I’m learning. I always think of myself as a late bloomer! Life is truly a journey and I believe we never stop growing, learning and developing into our purpose!
